featuring ann romney. he has to find a way to talk to women. yes, he does very well with suburban men, almost a mirror image of the women numbers, but he has to get the suburban women up. his big area that he can mine is really married suburban women, so you're going to see them targeting a lot of ads to those women. >> john, you heard the people kind of doubting the polls that go against their candidate and supporting the polls that do. you have been following polls for years. you know as well as anyone they're snapshots in time. what's the significance of them in this race right now? >> well, there are so many of them and we are so polarized, in the twitterverse in our conversations, most of the polls show a tiny percentage of undecided because you have the democrat and republican camps. it doesn't surprise me that there's doubt. if any happens against your guy, you immediately start a conspiracy theory. if you look at polls over the years, it's not an exact science, it's a snapshot in time. we will see if governor romney can sustain this bounce. the president got one ahead of his c

seen poll numbers like this in some time. i have to tell you, i talked to a senior romney advisor about this pew research center poll and they look at a couple things here. in relation to these polls. they are looking at the enthusiasm that is coming out at some of their campaign events. i can tell you, we have been at several of these campaign events over the last several days and they are getting some big turnouts, sometimes in excess of 10,000 people, and while yes, that may not be obama campaign numbers, those are good numbers for mitt romney. another thing that they're looking at, they are looking at undecided voters. they feel like undecided voters, because of that debate being viewed by so many millions of americans last week, that mitt romney was able to reach through the filter of the media as they like to call it, ann romney referred to it that way in an event in florida last week, and beyond those campaign ads, the very nasty campaign ads coming from the obama campaign to talk directly to the american people, and they feel like that's a factor as well. they are also loo

have been following governor romney for a long time. have you seen a marked -- you talk about a smile he has on the campaign trail. have you seen a big difference in how he's been campaigning since the debate? >> absolutely. you know, one thing that we should touch on is in that pew research center poll, it shows an 18 point swing to mitt romney among women voters, and i think that may vindicate some of what people were observing at that debate last week, when a lot of people thought mitt romney was sort of moving to the middle in certain areas on bank regulation, on at least trying to do so on health care reform and on taxes, even though the obama campaign was accusing him of etch-a-sketching throughout that debate. that may have been a factor in why the women vote, according to this poll, has swung so dramatically in mitt romney's direction. but at the same time, may be counter intuitive to say this, anderson, they are also trying to energize the base. that is why you saw mitt romney give that very muscular speech today over at virginia military institute talking about the potential

if he's going to get 12. i'm not a romney surrogate. i'm not in the campaign. i've never talked to the campaign. i had nothing to do with the romney -- i just believed this number should not determine the outcome of the presidential election. did you see today -- >> i agree with you. jack, you're a hero. you're a hero to businesspeople in this country. you're a hero to all sorts of people. let's just do it right now and you c you can go back to what you say. you did not cook the books, did you? >> i should have put a question mark behind it. >> so you believe it would have been seen as more of a provocative statement. >> there would have been a better statement. there's no question. i put a question mark. look at my tweet last night, ali. go look at the tweet at 11:00 last night after he came back from looking at choplynn. how many times assumptions. >> and we had numbers coming out just days before the election. >> we have to come to the discussion of how this number was arrived at. >> jack, good to have you on the program. ali velshi as well. . >>> up next, mitt romney now says h

obama and governor romney. i think he was talking about his health c.a.r.e. plare plan last. i believe everybody was given a 90-minute opportunity to be more -- >> in his health care plan he was saying pre-existing conditions are covered. but under most definitions, pre-existing conditions are not covered. if you have health insurance and you lose your job and have a preexisting condition, you can continue with coverage if you pay the premiums, that's not most people's definition. >> that is right. and i read that his senior adviser did talk about that in the spin room after the debate and clarified. i do want to say that the whole abortion and contraception, it's been talked to death this year through the war on women. i noticed conspicuous by his absence in that debate, president bush never uttered abortion or contraception -- >> but the health care thing we just talked about. his spokesman corrected him afterwards. why did he need to be corrected? you would think he would know what his position is. >> you have to ask governor romney what he said. i don't think there is any machinati

. you know, we -- i have been to michigan several times. we talked about can governor romney put pennsylvania into play. both of these states were out of reach, michigan and pennsylvania heading into the first debate. look where they are now. dead heat statistically in the state of michigan, where romney was born. his dad was governor. in pennsylvania, a close race as well with the president on top. i'm a bit skeptical. i want to see if this happens in a second and third poll but this is very important. states like this suddenly being in play heading into the final couple of weeks because if the president has to start spending time and money defending pennsylvania and defending michigan, that means less time the president is spending in florida, in ohio, in the western battlegrounds. at the moment the map is expanding, finally the romney campaign would say in its favor. >> interesting. john, thanks. >>> let's dig deeper. let's look forward to round three of the debates on tuesday, where the campaign is headed. joined by patrick millsaps, former chief of staff and paul begala. the

joins us now to talk about the factors that may spell success for governor romney or for president obama on tuesday as well as what could doom each to failure. i appreciate you being with us. i know there's a lot of stuff obviously that you learned about governor romney that you won't be discussing which is obviously totally fine. i wouldn't expect you to spill all the beans. but we just heard about body language, nonverbal communication. in your opinion, how critical is that to the perceived outcome of a debate? >> well, audiences report they take as much as 65% of meaning in a communications experience, including debates, from how people say things, not just what they say. >> 65%. wow. >> yeah. so body language is very important. it's very important to think about how you communicate, not just what you communicate. >> most people will say that romney was the winner of last week's debate. you say the winner of the first debate is typically viewed as the winner of all the debates but george w. bush, who you advised, was able to come back from a less than stellar first debate. how d

more aggressive. he's talked a lot about big bird out there on the campaign trail. romney is now kind of attacking him for keeping talking about big bird and pbs. what do you make of where the obama campaign is right now? >> i make that the obama campaign sees an opening there. the question is every campaign, candidates stumble, openings come. the question is can you recover from your mistakes, can you seize the opening. president obama sees we're talking about the giant scope of the federal budget and governor romney mentions big bird and pbs. come on, he doesn't get it. that's what president obama is trying to say. he doesn't want to cut wall street, he wants to not hurt the rich people when it comes to taxes and he wants to beat up on big bird. what governor romney says, you saw him pivot again today, he says well, that's just one example but you have to give examples and you have to start making choices. we have to review everything and we can't keep from china. it helps both of them. conservatives love to hear their candidate beating up on pbs, on government subsidies, sayin

or not. a bit later in the program, we will talk about one of the few moments that mr. romney failed to strike a tone of moderation. it concerns a great big yellow bird. that makes it on our "ridiculist" tonight. a good friend of his, oscar the grouch, i can tell you it's really got my attention. first, ari fleischer with the serious stuff. he serves as part-time unpaid communications consultant to the romney campaign and political analyst, roland martin. ari, what do you make -- do you say that mitt romney is seeming to be striking some more centrist positions, or at least sounding more centrist? >> well, let me try to peel this onion one slice at a time. the 47% comment really breaks down to two. one is that the pejorative way he spoke about the 47%, which as i, you didn't show my clip, when you asked me about that the day afterwards, i said it was wrong, they're not victims and he shouldn't use that word. the economic part of it is factually right. we are a country in which 47% of the country is excused from paying any income taxes. >> he said it's completely wrong. >> the

president obama and governor romney. i think that he was talking about his health care plan last week, and i don't believe it is an ideology shift, i believe they gift them the chance to be -- >> i mean on his health care plan he says pre-existing conditions are covered. when in fact by most people's defense, under his plan, pre-existing conditions are not covered. he is talking about health conditions, and if you lose your job, you can continue with coverage if you pay the premiums, that is not most people's position. >> and i read about that, he talked about that in the spin room after the debate and clarified. but i do want to say that the whole abortion and contraception, it has been talked to death this year, for the war on the women. and i noticed in his speech, president obama never talked about abortion. >> but on the health care thing we just talked about. i know his spokesperson corrected him afterward. why would he need to be corrected? you would think he would know what his position is, saying that during the debate is that an attempt to appeal to a wider range of people?

for you. >>> we're talking tonight with pat smith whose son sean smith was killed in the benghazi attack. former navy s.e.a.l. glen dougher dougherty's mother asked mitt romney to stop invoking her son's name on the campaign trail. pat smith did not speak about anyone's political agenda tonight. she is, however, bitter ly disappointed with the state department, the defense department, and the president. we'll talk to you about what the state department has said. we'll start with her unfulfilled search for answers. >> who told you that they would give you information? >> you will love this. obama told me, hillary promised me. joe dieden is -- joe biden is a treasure. he is a real sweetheart. they all told me that -- they promised me. i told them please, tell me what happened. just tell me what happened. >> so you, are still waiting to find out what happened to your son what they know, or even what they don't know. >> right. officially yes. i told them don't give me any bologna you can keep your political stuff, just tell me the truth. and i still don't know. in fact, today i heard
